A post-episode dissection of this week's The Walking Dead
episode, Inmates, will have to wait until next week. Marty is out sick,
and so in this episode of The Z-Realm Podcast, KMO shares part of a
conversation that he recorded with Joe Snuffy, the author of Suburban Survival: Preparing For Socio-Economic Collapse.
Joe describes his interest in both the zombie apocalypse narrative and
survival preparedness. He describes how zombie stories like The Walking
Dead would be different if it followed the experiences of a coordinated
group of trained survivalists rather than an ad hoc group of survivors
thrown together by circumstance. Later in the episode, KMO and Olga talk
about their underwhelming first impression of the tv version of Abraham compared to his Thor-like comic book incarnation.
